We are now showing Albert Frey House II ("Frey House") (1964) on select tours.  This is one of the most iconic and spectacular residences in Palm Springs.  Its innovative nature virtually transcends the realm of architecture placing this home closer to the realm of art.  It is a unique home situated on an elevated site with stunning views of the valley below.  Please let us know if you would like us to inquire about the availability of the Frey House for your tour.  Visits to the Frey House incur an additional fee of $50 per person.  The Frey House tours are offered exclusively as an add-on to our standard tour, which features additional interiors.  Visits to the Frey House require advance reservations with a minimum of 48 hours notice.  As the official tour of the Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center, we are given special consideration to view the house, however, please note that it is not always available.  Tours that include the Frey House are 3 hour tours (a 3 hour tour...)  Tours of the Frey House are not available on weekends or during Modernism Week.
